WHO WE ARE

Mission Statement

Pro-Life Mississippi is an organization of diverse and caring Christians. We are drawn together by our commitment to the sanctity of human life from fertilization to natural death. On behalf of those who cannot speak for themselves, we are a voice against abortion, infanticide, and euthanasia in Mississippi.

Our primary mission is to reach the citizens of Mississippi with the truth about these life issues by providing educational materials, pro-life events and speakers and thus to foster a sanctity of life ethic in the state. Our secondary mission is to take the pro-life message directly to those who threaten innocent human life.

We believe any threat to human life is primarily a spiritual issue. (Psalm 139:13-16; Jeremiah 1:5; Exodus 20:13). We believe confronting these threats is the responsibility of the church as the Body of Christ (1 Cor. 12:12-27; James 1:27, Prov. 24:11-12). We are committed to motivating and equipping the churches in Mississippi to actively stand firm against all attacks on innocent human life in all places, including the family, the church, in legislation, and in the public square (Jude 1:22-23; Heb. 10:24; Acts 24:24-25).

Statement of Belief

Pro-Life Mississippi believes the entire Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God. We believe God created man in his own image (Genesis 1:26). Because of this, we believe all human life is sacred and of inestimable worth in all its dimensions, including pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged, and every other stage or condition from fertilization to natural death. (Ps 139) We are therefore called to defend, protect, and value all human life. (James 1:27)
